Jall ad-Dn Muhammad Balkh, also known as Jall ad-Dn Muhammad Rm, and more popularly in the English-speaking world simply as Rumi, was a thirteenth-century Persian Muslim poet, jurist, theologian, and Sufi mystic.

Mowlana Jalaloddin Balkhi, known in Persia as Jalal ad-Dn Muhammad Balkh and in the West simply as Rumi, was born on September 30, 1207 in Balkh Province, Afghanistan, then on the eastern edge of the Persian Empire. Rumi descended from a long line of Islamic jurists, theologians, and mystics, including his father, who was known by followers of Rumi as "Sultan of the Scholars." When Rumi was still a young man, his father led their family more than 2,000 miles west to avoid the invasion of Genghis Khan's armies. They settled in present-day Turkey, where Rumi lived and wrote most of his life.

Jalal al-Din Rumi (c. 1207-73) is a famous Muslim mystic and poet. Fleeing the Mongol invaders, his family emigrated from Balkh (in modern Afghanistan) to Konya (a city now in central Turkey).

Rumi began his career as a preacher and theologian, but after meeting a dervish, he became a mystic, or Sufi. His followers formed the Mevlevi order of dervishes, sometimes known in the West as the "whirling dervishes," after their dance that emulates the movement of planets on their journey of spiritual fulfillment. Rumi wrote the largest corpus of lyric poetry in the Persian language, amounting to 40,000 couplets, as well as a 25,000 couplet epic, the Mathnavi. Rumi's poetry has universal appeal; he is today the best selling poet in the USA.
